Despite the cold weather and looming deadlines, students are still managing to dress to impress whilst battling both the elements and a heavy workload.

The Linc has been on campus, looking at which trends are playing key roles amongst the many fashion forward students for this essential February style update.


Alex, a 1st year Film and TV student, encapsulates everything which is current about the vintage look. Sporting staple items such as the skinny jean and the relentless Doc Martens, Alex is an example of how great casual can look.


Dressing in all black will never not be current. Teamed with a blue aztec print shirt fastened only at the collar, 2nd year International Business Management student Enoch combines a hint of colour for an essentially cool look.


Fu Yuwei, a 3rd year student who also studies International Business Management, shows us just how important great styling is. By fastening this pretty brown and cream coat at the waist with a bow, she creates a much sharper silhouette.


2nd year Creative Advertising student Nina combines different fabrics for an impressive layered look. Her faux fur jacket and blazer combination elegantly contrasts her casual black leggings and converse – quirky fashion at it’s best.


The camel coloured coat is this season’s essential item. It’s an absolute go to item when adding a touch of class to your outfit and Jodie, a 3rd year English student, pulls it off perfectly. She contrasts camel shades on black for the ultimate look.


Anya, a History post-grad, wears another staple design seen on many garments this season – tartan. This deep purple shade with a fur trim looks both smart and cute layered on top of black and white.
